(28 April, 2012)

Posted in Oana Avasilichioaei, Past Workshops

Instructor: Oana Avasilichioaei

When: 28 April 2012, 1:00-4:30 PM (Saturday)

Location: 918 Bathurst Street, Room L5

Tread on the musical margin of your text. Stir into its syntax with the knees, the oesophagus, the collarbone. How listening is textural. How to sound and embody your text’s poetic architectures. Vowelled vocables, voracious prepositions perform the necessity of markings, digital ink.

Enter the poetry laboratory and experiment with sounding, voicing and performing your poetic texts off the page. We will spend time listening to some relevant poetic performances, engaging with questions of composition and movement, pacing, the translation between mediums, and developing techniques to better voice and embody work. We will also play with some technologies and make audio recordings of our experiments.

Each participant is asked to bring one short poetic text which they would like to transform into a performative, textural sound piece.

This workshop is limited to 12 students.

Price: $85.00
